This is a sort of quirky quiet island motel with no on site staff. We enjoyed it very much indeed, but if you want on site managers this is not the place for you. We were in Room 5 which was huge, recently renovated I would say, with a very good king bed, well equipped kitchen and a good bathroom....

I really want to say that everything is wonderful here as in stays several years ago but something just isn't in synch. The location is great since it's on the West end of the island and away from the congestion and noise. Lighthouse Café, ice cream store and West End Deli are within extremely easy walking distance. But, something's missing...

Stayed here in January 2014. Nice sized room, helpful staff (when you can locate them) but the place is tired, like most of the cottages in the area. Good value for money, spacious rooms with full size fridge. Appliances are noisy. There might be better places for the price but I enjoyed my time here.

This is a lovely place. We have stayed there the past 8 years. But this year we when we went we were told the inn keepers would not be coming back! What a HUGH mistake on the owners part. We have only returned to this lovely spot because of the care takers. Brenda and Lenny became like family. Because of...

I love to leave reviews for everything, so I will be thorough. I'm from Florida and love to explore new places here. First off if you mind washing your own dishes, sweeping your own floor or making your own bed, don't stay here. This place is for people who like nature, quiet and to be left alone. Pros: Room very...

Tucked in the trees, peaceful, patio area, groovy decoration inside, kitchenette. Mellow place. Perfect for getaway. There is some amount of do-it-yourself - no one cleaned the room while we were there...perhaps an oversight? Either way it was nice to be left alone.

My husband and I wanted a little weekend getaway to relax. We found the parrot nest and it sounded just right. We checked in late and we had a nice note with instructions waiting for us. It's a small inn with just 6 suites so the owners are not always there. The room was nice. Big sleep number bed, very...

This is my fourth stay on Sanibel and, for me, I need look no further than the Parrot Nest. I originally chose it because it is small, walkable to both sides of the island's beaches and the price was right. I also teach in a high school and did not want a pool as well as not wanting teenagers running...

Was fortunate to find availability at the Parrot Nest over a busy holiday week. Price could have been better, but accommodations were perfect for our needs. Lenny greeted us when we arrived and although we didn't see Brenda, we knew she was only a phone call away. Loved the feather pillows, white towels, and great shower. Lighting in the room...

Had another 2 night stay at the nest. Rooms were great and Brenda and Lenny greeted us with their charm once again. Location is well within walking distance to the beach so took advantage of 2 days soaking up some Sanibel Sun.
